Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor, who died on Friday at 15:35 BST, had cancer.

He had been seriously ill in hospital since his health took a
"defining turn" in August.

He became the 10th Archbishop of Westminster in March 2000 and
therefore the leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and
Wales.

Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor retired from the role in 2009 and was the
first archbishop to do so.

Born on 24 August 1932 in Reading, Berkshire, Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor
was one of six children. Two of his brothers became priests while
another played rugby for Ireland.

He was ordained priest in Rome in October 1956 and was made Cardinal
in 2001 by Pope John Paul II.

His death leaves Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve
Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the
lone major religious figure born on that day.This same day pair
came up short compared to the Austrian Cardinal Koenig and Anglican
bishop R.P. Wilson (born August 3rd 1905,died 2004 and 2002 respectively).

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
